At OPEC College, we understand that the Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) process can sometimes be misconceived. But we want to set the record straight.
Our assessors are not only well-versed in the RPL process, but also deeply committed to helping individuals unlock their true potential. We strive to provide a smooth and efficient RPL experience that exceeds your expectations and places the majority of the administrative workload on our shoulders.
RPL is not an exclusive process reserved for a select few. We firmly believe that anyone, regardless of their background or years of experience, can benefit from RPL. Our assessors carefully examine the skills, knowledge, and expertise you have accumulated throughout your professional journey. We then link this valuable experience to relevant courses, which enables you to achieve a qualification that aligns with your unique experience and aspirations.
Our RPL process is completed in three distinct steps, with each step carefully designed to prioritise efficiency and ensure your success:
Step 1: Preliminary Assessment
To initiate the RPL process, you provide us with essential documents, such as your CV and a description of your current job. We conduct a complimentary, no-obligation preliminary assessment, providing you with three choices:
1. Qualifications achievable through full RPL.
2. Qualifications achievable through a combination of RPL and study.
3. Qualifications requiring specific study components.
Based on your preferences and aspirations, you select the path that best suits you and enrol with us.
Step 2: Assessment Phase
In this phase, you submit evidence of your experience using our comprehensive RPL Guides, with ongoing support from our experienced assessors. You can then sit back and leave the hard work to us. We meticulously map your evidence against the qualifications you are pursuing and identify any potential gaps. If required, our team works closely with you, providing guidance and assisting in gathering additional evidence across various formats. Through this collaborative effort, we ensure a thorough mapping process that brings you closer to achieving your RPL qualification.
Step 3: Qualification Phase
Congratulations! You’ve reached the final phase of your RPL journey. We celebrate your success by issuing your hard and soft copy of your qualification. Moreover, we offer you the opportunity to attend a personalised graduation event, honouring your achievement.
Becoming an OPEC College alumnus brings numerous benefits, including preferential pricing on additional courses, referral fees, and access to exclusive resources, because the OPEC College team is committed to supporting your ongoing learning journey beyond RPL.
At OPEC College, our assessors will go above and beyond to assist you. We leave no stone unturned in helping you gather the necessary evidence for your qualification. In rare cases where sufficient evidence cannot be obtained, we explore alternative options with you, such as considering a different qualification or focusing on specific components that require further study. Our primary focus remains on ensuring you obtain your qualification in the most efficient and effective way possible.
